Miami Heat Take First NBA Title

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

Shaquille O’Neal promised an NBA Title when he arrived in Miami via the trade from the L.A. Lakers. It took him a few years and but he delivered. He delivered with the help of a team effort, a legendary coach and a phenomenal superstar. They won by winning game 6 with a score of 95-92.
The […]

Chris Paul named Rookie of The Year

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Sometimes you wish all decisions were as easy as this. Chris Paul could have been named Rookie of the Year months ago and they’d still be right. It’s like this piece of news isn’t news at all, since everyone knew eons ago that this dude would win it. Yes there were a few rookies who […]

Big Ben Wins 4th Defensive Player of the Year Award

Monday, May 8th, 2006

Somehow choosing the Defensive Player of the Year these days gets really boring. It’s always the same guys that get nominated and it’s always Ben Wallace that wins. For this reason I was sort of wishing that Bruce Bowen or Ron Artest would win this year. But that’s just because I’m bored.
But seriously, I […]

Boris Diaw gets Most Improved Player Award

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006

A lot of you must be saying, “Where did this guy come from?!!” Well, the Atlanta Hawks actually. No one really noticed him there since he didn’t do much there. When he was traded to the Suns for Joe Johnson, I thought it was one of the worst decisions ever made. Everyone did!
Suddenly, we […]

Grizzlies’ Mike Miller Gets Sixth Man Award

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

The 2000-2001 Rookie of the Year Mike Miller of the Memphis Grizzlies now gets another top honor - as a reserve. His production off the bench this season was so spectacular he could very well have been a starter like he was last season. In spite of that, he had no problems energizing […]

Steve Nash To Be Named 2005-2006 MVP

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

The MVP race reached it’s end now that the NBA is now in the playoffs. It’s been such a great season for many players that they each had a legitimate case for making it. We’re talking about the spectacular performances of Dirk, Lebron, Kobe, Elton Brand, Billups, Tony Parker and Steve Nash.
But only one wins […]

Avery Johnson to be named Coach of the Year

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

The “Little General” Avery Johnson will be named the 2005-2006 NBA Coach of the Year, a fitting honor for his performance in his first full year as head coach. Johnson led the Dallas Mavericks to a 60-22 record, a record tied with the Mavs 2002-2003 record for best in franchise history. The Mavs have the […]

The Barkley Award goes to…..

Friday, April 21st, 2006

Barkley Award? Well it’s the MVP award but it’s not what you think. This stands for Most Visible Problem.
in honor of a guy who once got angry during an NBA game and spit out in disgust, only to watch in horror as his loogie landed on a little girl sitting courtside.
First of all I’m not […]

Pierce gets praise from Red

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

Paul Pierce gets the inaugural Red Auerbach Award, an award given to the players who best exemplfies the Celtic spirit. Paul definitely deserves this honor as he is star and the leader of the team. What makes me feel uneasy about this the fact that they didn’t think of giving this award […]

Kobe almost sure to win scoring title

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

This is what Kobe wanted. He’s THE star of his team, no longer the Robin to Shaq’s Batman. It’s almost certain that he’ll win the scoring title and it looks like they just managed to secure a low spot in the playoffs too. Kobe’s scoring is the only reason has a lot to do with […]
